Essential Techniques of Landscape Drawing:
Mastering the Concepts and Methods for Observing and Rendering NatureForeword: Domenic Cretara
Watson-Guptil Publication 2018
Landscape Drawing employs observational skills to translate the scene through drawing techniques in graphite. This book is aimed at the novice drawer and builds from fundamental concepts of visual thinking to light logic and shading techniques to composition. Each of the components of the landscape (sky, terrain, trees and water) are described in detail with practice strokes and demonstration drawings that show their step-by-step development. How these techniques are then utilized with other drawing media is explored in the last chapter.
